zippdementia I'm best known for my extensive work in the fields of this and that. I tend to be better at that, though I have more fun with this.

I'm an odd jobber with an even personality who isn't afraid to roll with the punches but prefers to dodge them when able.

Title: Persona 4- First Impressions
Posted: January 18, 2009 (07:44 PM)
Well, I went and picked up Persona 4, yes indeed.

Had kind've a funny experience where due to power failures, I had to play the opening two days three times. This didn't really help my opinion of the pacing.

But seriously, it seems like an incredible game. I'm a little perturbed that I'm on day three, nearly an hour and a half into the game, and HAVEN'T ACTUALLY PLAYED YET but the story is MUCH BETTER than Persona 3, or hell, ANY of the Personas. Excellent mixture of Noir and Mystery and Horror, and I LOVE THE FUCKING CHARACTERS SOOO MUCH.

The script is really solid, too.

All around, I think this was a wisely designed game. Well, at least for now... I haven't played any game yet...

Yeah one of my biggest complaints about P4 was the really long introductory phase. It must have been 2 or 3 hours before you really get to do anything.

One of the longest introductions ever. But a great game indeed.

A bit further in by now, and indeed it is probably the best of the Persona's. It's far more interesting and original than Persona 3 was, anyways.

I'm still a little put off by how long some of the scenes can be (I just watched an entire in-game day go by with nary a button push from me), and I'm still disappointed that what you chose to say seems to have little effect except the occasional added comment from the peanut gallery.
